Bess McNeill (Watson), a naive and pious girl from a remote Scottish village, is happy after marrying virile oil rig worker Jan Nyman (Stellan Skarsgrd), but when an accident leaves him paralyzed, he tells her she can "aid his recovery" by having sexual encounters with strangers and describing them to him. With Katrin Cartlidge, Jean-Marc Barr. 152 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English DTS HD 5.1 Master Audio; Subtitles: English (SDH).
